September 30, 2015

One of the district’s newest ‘recruits’ comes from the United States Air Force.

For the last 13 years, Craig Matta performed with the Band of the Liberty, Band of the Pacific, and most recently, the Band of the West here in San Antonio. He is now serving as the new music teacher at Adams Hill Elementary School.

Prior to joining the military, Matta taught music near his hometown in Western Pennsylvania. This year he’s back in the classroom, ready to share his passion for music with students. He says, “Children aren’t only our future, they are our treasure. That’s why I want to teach – to be part of these young lives.”
